Editions & Impressions; Twenty Years on the Book Beat / Basbanes, Nicholas A. ; Jaffe A ; Kaplan M., 2007

 Item
Identifier: CC-47817-68837
Scope and Contents L.A. Times: "If anyone in the United States is truly a book person, surely it is Nicholas A. Basbanes. For two decades, the literary critic and columnist has cast a fond, even loving eye, on the culture of books, their substance, their wider meaning in society and the people who -- in ways similar and markedly different -- share his passion. His intense engagement with all things bookish shines from every page of his new collection of journalistic pieces, each one sparkling with insights born of total immersion in his beloved subject. Basbanes already has written a handful of indispensable books on this topic, but, as he makes clear in his introduction to "Editions & Impressions," he selected these particular essays "precisely because they are not replicated in any substantial way" in his other published work.

Hubert's Freaks / Gibson, Gregory ; Arbus D., 2008

 Item
Identifier: CC-47815-68835
Scope and Contents From Publishers Weekly: From the late 1950s until her death in 1971, renowned photographer Diane Arbus took pictures of oddball performers at the now-forgotten Hubert's Museum, a typical freak show in New York City's seedy Times Square. One frequent subject was Charlie Lucas, first a freak himself, later an inside talker. In 2003, Bob Langmuir, an anxiety-ridden, pill-popping, obsessive antiquarian book dealer from Philadelphia, unearthed a collection of photographs and memorabilia, including Lucas's journals and what he thought were Arbus's photos. This trove of genuine American kookiness came to dominate his life. Following Langmuir's quest"”from the slums of Philadelphia to the halls of the Metropolitan Museum of Art"”as he gathered, priced and ultimately came to understand this collection, author Gibson (Gone Boy: A Walkabout), himself an antiquarian book dealer, effortlessly twists these strands together with an emotional wallop. His toil in Hubert's vineyard, Gibson writes of...

Peggy Guggenheim: Ths Shock of the Moderm / Prose, Francine., 2015

 Item
Identifier: CC-61579-10004035
Scope and Contents Amazon.com: One of twentieth-century America's most influential patrons of the arts, Peggy Guggenheim (1898--1979) brought to wide public attention the work of such modern masters as Jackson Pollock and Man Ray. In her time, there was no stronger advocate for the groundbreaking and the avant-garde. Her midtown gallery was the acknowledged center of the postwar New York art scene, and her museum on the Grand Canal in Venice remains one of the world's great collections of modern art. Yet as renowned as she was for the art and artists she so tirelessly championed, Guggenheim was equally famous for her unconventional personal life, and for her ironic, playful desire to shock.Acclaimed best-selling author Francine Prose offers a singular reading of Guggenheim's life that will enthrall enthusiasts of twentieth-century art, as well as anyone interested in American and European culture and the interrelationships between them. The lively and insightful narrative follows Guggenheim through...
